I never was a fruity wheat kind of beer drinker, but as I've gotten older, my palate seems to have changed and now I seem to enjoy any kind of beer.
This beer scared me at first. I was told it has an overpowering berry taste to it, and I was reluctant to get it. However, I had heard the same thing about Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, yet I found that beer to be exceptional.
I had the beer in the bottle so I have no idea what it looks like, though I'm guessing something purpley-pinkish.
It smells like you would expect...very berry, and not at all like a beer.
In your mouth, you can feel the burn of the carbonation, but it's very refreshing at the same time.
There is no hint of bitter in the aftertaste, only berries.
Instead of a beer flavored with berries, it tastes more like a wine coolers flavored with a hint of beer. That's not a bad thing, but not everyone will like this beer because of it.
I enjoyed my first bottle after a long round of golf in the hot sun. It really was refreshing and totally hit the spot for me.
